White Peony White Tea

Our White Peony or Bai Mu Dan White Tea is delicate and perfect with long and fine, silvery down green leaves that yield a clear golden liquid with a slight green hue that produces a fresh green aroma that is almost honey like with a floral undertone. The flavour is mildly sweet and mellow reminiscent of juicy white grapes and ripe melon along with the hints of hay and barley. Soft and easy-to-drink texture makes this tea a perfect all-day-round drink.

White Peony is a stronger flavoured white tea when compared to Silver Needle and is perfect for everyday consumption. New, young shoots and 2 closed leaves are harvested a week after the Silver Needle variety has already been picked from the same tea bushes (Da Bai or the big leaf varietal) and the picked leaves are allowed to wither slowly under the sun.

The same as our Silver Needle, this White Peony comes from at the Nine Peaks Mountains in Funding City, Fujian Province. Our White Peony is grown in a remote location that reaches an altitude of 1000m that has slightly acidic soil that is excellent for growing tea. The unique terrain where the tea is grown is in partial shade of other trees adds to the exceptionally pure taste of this white tea.       

White teas are known for being the least processed tea family by allowing the tea leaves to remain as close as possible to their natural state. This tea delivers many of the health benefits of the green tea while being much gentler on the stomach.
